## Ellipsis algebra

This program covers the fundamental concepts of algebra, including exponents and radicals, linear equations and inequalities, ratio and proportion, factoring quadratics, completing the square and much more. Most students who have completed a typical Pre-algebra course are ready for this course.

We offer a thorough exploration of topics and give a much greater depth both in mathematical content and in problem solving skills. In-depth topic discussion and many applications are part of the in-class learning. Students receive weekly assignments which may take them 1 hour to 2 hours per week. Topics discussed in this course will be similar to those found in Algebra I honors class at schools.
